About the Book

Frank Drew and his son Francis are faced with life-altering challenges and choices as the American Revolution reaches into their peaceful world on the Piscataqua River system in southeastern New Hampshire. Frank is a successful carpenter, content with his life and happy family, while his son Francis is reaching an age of apprenticeship and wrestles with the decision to follow his calling in education, or his father’s trade in carpentry. These choices divide them and ultimately reunite the father and son while each finds a way to fight the War in a way consistent with their beliefs and abilities. Filled with historical details, anecdotes, and real places and figures from history, this book will appeal to anyone exploring New Hampshire’s role in the Revolution and life in Colonial New Hampshire.

A decade in the U.S. Coast Guard took her to sea and also exposed her to “creative fiction” while working as an intelligence analyst.
